Understand what exactly web accelerators are and how it is possible to make the most of them to improve your site’s performance.
A web accelerator is an application that quickens a website, normally by caching its content. There are various sorts of accelerators, but in the common case this sort of apps cache static content or database responses and provide them instead of the web server, thus improving the performance of an Internet site considerably. The latter can be done because accelerator applications work faster than a server and not simply will a site function better, but the server load shall also lessen, which will enable you to run heavy sites with less resources. We provide 3 web accelerators with our hosting plans, which will permit you to speed up any type of Internet site. In comparison, most Internet hosting businesses do not provide any web accelerators or provide only one, which limits your choice of web apps in case you'd like to use this kind of software.
Web Accelerators in Shared Hosting
In case you purchase one of our shared hosting
packages, you'll have 3 popular web accelerators at your disposal and you'll be able to access them directly via the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with our packages. Varnish is one of the most popular ones and it could considerably increase the speed of any Internet site as it caches the web pages which a site visitor opens for the first time and delivers them each and every time that website visitor opens them again. Because Varnish functions noticeably faster than any hosting server, the loading speed of any site using the accelerator will raise significantly. Memcached is employed to cache database and API calls and responses between an Internet site visitor and a hosting server, so it's similar to Varnish, but is used largely for database-driven websites. Since the website will connect to its database a lot less, the overall hosting server load will be reduced significantly. The 3rd accelerator, Node.js, is employed for scalable online applications like chats and booking Internet sites as it processes data in real time as soon as it is entered on the webpage by the users. Based on the plan you pick, these accelerators could be available or may be an optional upgrade.
Web Accelerators in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server
plans shall enable you to use Memcached, Varnish and Node.js - three of the most efficient web accelerators available. Memcached is used to cache database and API calls and responses, so it could easily accelerate any script-driven website. You can use it for any Internet site developed with WordPress or Joomla™
, for instance. Varnish is also known as an HTTP reverse proxy and it's a general-purpose caching platform which can be used for any kind of sites. Depending on the content, it may improve the performance of a website close to 300%. Node.js is an innovative system employed to create scalable Internet applications that process information in real time such as booking portals. Its advantage is that in contrast to similar platforms, it processes info consistently and in small bits rather than waiting for the user to submit one sizeable piece of data. The accelerators could be enabled for any site via the Hepsia CP and you will be able to pick how many instances of every one of them will work and how much memory they'll use.
Web Accelerators in Dedicated Servers
In case you choose Hepsia as the hosting Control Panel for your new dedicated server, you shall have Memcached, Varnish and Node.js available for increasing the speed of your websites. Memcached can lessen the load on the web server by lowering the queries your script-driven Internet sites make as it caches database responses. This web accelerator is good for dynamic Internet sites designed with WordPress, Joomla™
and very similar scripts. Varnish, which is referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy, caches entire sites the first time a new guest opens them. It can be employed to accelerate any sort of website because it delivers the cached content considerably faster than the hosting server each time a visitor opens the same page again. You'll be able to employ Node.js for online apps that require real-time server-client interaction including online chats or booking Internet sites. Unlike other platforms which wait for the user to input everything on a form, Node.js processes the information bit by bit as the user fills each box, so it operates faster and more effectively. All dedicated server
solutions include several gigabytes of memory dedicated to these 3 web accelerators.
